Blues have been informed that £210,000 a-week Defender will not be getting new deal at giants

German legend Jurgen Kohler has told the likes of Chelsea that Bayern Munich will not be renewing the contract of Jerome Boateng.

After leaving Manchester City for a move to Bayern Munich, Boateng has gone on to become a very important player in the German side over the past few seasons, and is widely considered to be one of the best in the Bundesliga.

However, now 32-years of age, his contract is up at the end of the season and that has led to all sorts of rumours in the media that we are one club that are very interested in offering him a contract in the summer.

Kohler says he does not believe Bayern will renew the 32-year-old defender’s deal, as he feels the delay has been telling: “I don’t think Bayern will extend the contract,” Kohler said of Boateng on GOAL.

“When Bayern is convinced of a player, the talks are usually held early on. Hansi Flick has opened up a different perspective for Boateng, but he is also getting on and has become more injury-prone.

“Bayern already have three top players in this position with [Dayot] Upamecano, Sule and [Lucas] Hernandez, who are much younger.

“I’m also sure that they will bring in another player for the defence – perhaps also a replacement for [Javi] Martinez in the number six role, who can also play in central defence.

“If I were in Bayern’s position I would think about [Denis] Zakaria.”

The man is past his best, so would not be a good signing for the club
